Got A Startup That Needs Funding? These Guys Have $1 Million For You

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

Many of us think we have that one idea that is going to make us filthy, stinkin’ rich, but then the moment passes and the opportunity is missed.

Of course the biggest obstacle to success is often finding the funding, which is what makes this competition such a winner.

Chivas Regal is calling on all South Africans with a cracking business idea to enter Chivas Venture 2018, “a global search for the next generation of business trailblazers that want to change the world for the better”.

The best bit – everyone who enters has the chance to win their share of $1 million (R13,5 million).

This, via Fin24, is how it all works:

One talented entrepreneur will be selected from each of the participating 29 countries and five continents to take part in an exclusive Accelerator Programme before competing on a global stage. This will be followed by three weeks of online voting where the allocation of the first $200,000 will be put into the hands of the public. The Chivas Venture 2018 will then climax in a series of high-stakes pitches at the Chivas Venture final, where the remainder of the $1 million will be distributed.

The overall winner will walk away with the lion’s share of $1 million to finance their winning business idea, receive global exposure as well as support from world-famous business mentors.

I think that’s something I can get on board with.

Of course it’s not just about the money – ask James Steere, Co-Founder of I-Drop Water, South Africa:

The Chivas Venture has given me exposure to people around the world who share my passion for using business to solve social challenges and whose perspectives and experiences are very valuable.

Now is your time to shine, budding entrepreneurs, but get you get cracking. Applications close on October 29, so you have just over two weeks to make the magic happen.
